The President of the United States took to Twitter this morning in order to throw disgraced Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore under the bus, passive-aggressively blaming him for jeopardizing his thin Senate majority with the lost seat and thus his entire political agenda.
If last night’s election proved anything, it proved that we need to put up GREAT Republican candidates to increase the razor thin margins in both the House and Senate.

This is obviously directed at Roy Moore, who was credibly accused of sexually harassing and assaulting eight women when they were teenagers on top of being a homophobic, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic religious extremist.
He was possibly the worst political candidate to ever run for office, and Trump’s tweet may also be seen as a public rebuke to his close confidant, former White House Strategist and current Breitbart News editor Steven Bannon, who backed Moore against Trump’s preferred candidate of Luther Strange in the primary.
But more importantly for Trump, last night taught him for the second time in months that his endorsement – the “Make America Great Again” brand – isn’t enough to propel candidates to victory, which has to be a source of great discomfort for the President.
The tide is shifting against Trump, and even he can tell.
